AKG C214 Large Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
The AKG C214 professional large-diaphragm condenser microphone has been designed as a cost-effective alternative to the high-end C414 family. Like the C414, the C214 offers a supreme one-inch capsule on an integrated suspension to reduce mechanical noise. A switchable 20dB attenuation pad allows recording of loud sources of up to 156dB SPL. A switchable bass-cut filter allows close-up recording with almost no proximity effect.
The AKG C214 captures sound by combining one capsule of the legendary C414 dual-capsule system and the patented AKG Back-Plate Technology, resulting in an outstanding performance close to the famous C414 XLII.
The C214 was "the best-selling condenser microphone for studio and stage in the United States from October 1, 2013 to September 30, 2014" No other condenser microphone generated more revenue, as the C214 found its way into countless projects, ranging from home recording studios to international concert tours and everything in between.
